BUILT FOR HIGH-DRIVE K9S

WE BROKE THE VICE MACHINE AT 4,000 LB. OF PRESSURE

We've built the most durable rotomolded kennel on the market – referred to as more than one customer as "virtually bombproof." And though our crates were created specifically for travel, we've had many customers find their solution in Gunner Kennels for their high-drive dogs or pets with phobias/anxiety (just check out some of our reviews or read our blog). The Gunner's double-wall construction and impenetrable door system with backup safety latches make this a Houdini-Proof product.

Note: Please review our lifetime manufacturer's warranty here.

DESTRUCTIVE MAL

While working out of the country my 80lb. Belgian Malinois had become crazy with me being gone. He was terrorizing my poor wife by escaping kennels and destroying our garage while she was at work. He shredded a normal plastic kennel, torqued a wire kennel, torqued a second brand new wire kennel with industrial strength zip ties added to weak points. After a 7' tall outdoor kennel only held him for 45 seconds before he jumped clean out of it.... I was out of options. I purchased the G1 Large kennel and had it in about a week.

He has yet to escape it or try and damage it. Build quality is better than expected, it is uber heavy ( good because he can't tip it over ). I made a follow up order for the chew guards and a performance pad solely because of the quality of the kennel and their willingness to help out a first time customer.

- Dakota

INDESTRUCTIBLE

This is the best dog purchase I have made to date. My dog chewed through 3 crates before I found the Gunner Kennel.

I'm not sure if its the design or the plastic, but he has yet to find a way out and is totally relaxed and calm in the crate. I did notice a few bites marks after his first time in the crate, but he must have met his match, but he has yet to chew it again. I was desperate when I bought this and have been extremely happy with this purchase.

I would recommend this crate to anyone- especially someone with a destructive dog!

- Ali

COULD NOT BE ANYMORE PLEASED!

This kennel has been absolutely amazing. My GSD had previously broken/escaped four different kennels. On the last one, I even put some caribiners on weak parts of the crate, and the clever girl still figured a way out of that crate. She's only 10 months old and can be destructive when left to her own devices, so that's why I kennel her when I'm away from home. The G1 kennel has been fantastic. I got the metal chewkit on the door, just to be safe. She loves the kennel. Goes right in with no problem, doesn't fuss, etc. So far she has not figured out how to escape this one(fingers crossed that she never will).

– Eric

10/10 RECOMMEND

10/10 recommend this kennel. Thank you Gunner Kennels for saving our pup!

G1 FOR GUNNER

Gunner is my 1 1/2 old Belgian Malinois. He is being trained as my service dog. His separation anxiety is the worst I’ve seen from any dog. He is very destructive when he’s away from the family or my 8 year old German Shepherd Dog. Wire and other plastic crates can’t contain him when he is anxious and he doesn’t care if he hurts himself escaping. The G1 crate contains him and he’s finally getting used to staying in the crate and overcoming his phobia.

– Tom

ESCAPE ARTIST MEETS HER MATCH!

In two months she’s 'broken' out of two crates. Since getting the G1 ™ she goes inside just to rest on her own. Glad to know when we go on trips she will be safe and unable to undo the door mid ride.

– Jennifer C.

THE GUNNER DIFFERENCE

Innovative Drainage System

An oversized, removable drain plug makes for easy cleaning. The recessed floor makes sure your dog isn't sitting in water or mud on the trip home

Wider Base

A wider base better prevents rollover, and any unwanted movement

Built-In Tie-Down Pins

Gunner's integrated stainless-steel pins & tie-down strap combination ensures anchoring to the vehicle. The combination has been tested to not rip from kennel on impact

Non-Slip Elevated Feet

Raises crate off the ground, limiting heat transmission or conduction from surfaces. Stabilizes kennel and reduces any slippage

Custom Door System

Paddle Latch Lock

Paddle-latch door offers easy opening & closing. Includes a key-in-the-hole lock to protect your pup during bathroom breaks

Stainless Steel Hardware

Backup & Safety Latches

These top & bottom locks are an added on the door add extra backup, containing even the greatest escape artist

Water-Repelling Windows

Our vents were engineered to limit penetration of seasonal elements like rain, sleet and snow

SAFETY DETAILS

PROVEN TO SAVE

At the heart of our company is safety. Since our launch we've helped protect thousands of dogs on the road. We've helped save dozens of dogs too.

5 STAR CRASH TESTED

The Gunner Kennel is the original dog crate to earn a 5 Star Crash Test Rating from the Center for Pet Safety. See what that means and why that matters.

"VIRTUALLY BOMBPROOF"

You said it, not us. Tested to withstand a 630 lb. sled dropped from over 8 feet, a 200-foot cliff drop, 4,000 lb. of force and a 12-gauge shot gun and more.

PROTECTS IN ALL WEATHER

Due to its double-wall rotomolded construction and patented details, the Gunner kennel has properties that work for your dog in all types of weather.

HOT WEATHER

Our double-wall rotomolded construction offers an extra layer of material which helps limit UV rays, as well as humidity.

Rubber feet raise the G1™ off the ground, limiting heat transmission from hot surfaces like truck beds & pavement.

Purchasing our pad accessories add an additional layer of protection, helping bring temps down inside the crate.

The G1™ has ample airflow with 10 windows on its sides, a vented door and three rear windows. The G1™ Fan Kit gets even more air circulation through there.

We conducted temperature tests using our kennel & others on the market. There was a nearly 50 degree difference between one popular crate and ours. See results here

COLD WEATHER

The second layer of construction on our G1™ adds extra protection against outside chill and cold winds.

Rubber feet raise the G1™, limiting heat transmission out of kennel & allowing the dog to retain warmth.

In the same way, our pad accessories limits heat conduction from the frozen ground, keeping the dog cozy in there.

Engineers specifically designed the window vents to repel elements like water, sleet & snow. Plus our All-Weather Kit provides additional protection.

Gunner Kennels tests on cold winter days showed that the G1™ stayed anywhere from 15-45 degrees warmer inside the kennel than exterior temperatures.
